Obama has exterpated America as we know it. He promised change, we got it. And he's proud of it...

Congress needs to extirpate Obama from the White House and any remnant of him from the government — IMPEACH.

The one good thing in Virginia’s favor is their prohibition against a 2nd term for a Governor. I used to think that was short-sighted, but the law givers in VA must have seen McCauliffe coming when they wrote that provision.

Did you see that interview? First of all, he looks about 25 and the smug attitude defines why I despise this administration. It was like arguing with a teenager, which I did last night. I asked the spouse why he didn’t confront her on what she was saying and what they were teaching. He said she’s 17, she thinks she knows it all, why waste my time arguing with her? I said because she’s WRONG!

In the case of most of the slimestream media, and in the case of that idiot Tommy Vietor (see interview on FOX last night), the word should actually be ‘extwerpate’.

Abe Lincoln was the Great Emancipator
Now Obama is the Great Extirpator
Constitution destroyed
*HALF the voters annoyed
We need Reagan, the Great Communicator

*The other half is enjoying their free stuff.

Now that it’s afternoon, it’s looking like rain. I have to bathe the dog today, we are going to see the grandkiddies tonight and she was specifically invited. She is AKA mud dog, for her muddy paws and belly.

Nah. 8<)

We extreefoliate in the fall when the leaves drop ....

Then again, I do often order more turnip and collard greens with our BBQ, but that is merely extrafoliage ....

With over 80 years of Socialist insinuation into our lives, it will be nearly impossible to extirpate all the Gov't tentacles. Once instituted, there's very little motivation on the part of professional Politicians to exit, taper off or drastically modify any program that "helps" people ... no one seeking reelection wants the money flow to expire attributed to their watch. These long-timers have become expert at ingratiating themselves with local & special interests that keep them in place, term after term after term.

In the case of Obamacare (simply a pretext I believe for eventual Single-Payer), there was no real Humanitarian OR fiscal need for a program of that scope, especially where much more reasonable, Conservative proposals i.e. to tie pre-tax dollars to Health Savings Accounts are routinely cast aside by the "Party of the Little Guy".

It was a scam from the get-go, a plan to take over 20% of the US economy. It had nothing to do with providing insurance for the uninsured and their numbers haven’t changed. All that happened was a lot of people who did have insurance had their policies cancelled and the new ones they can get cost twice as much and then some.

It is 65 and cloudy-supposed to get to the mid-70’s later...

Are there any job descriptions
For working at the WH now?
Are requirements extirpated
That spell out when and how

Every applicant got a degree
Where it’s from, and the grades-
And maybe some real experience
In more than wearing shades

Maybe real linguistic skills
Instead of just political speak-
Not saying dude in interviews
Or lying when there’s a leak...

I was LMAO at that idiot talking in that interview the way we talk at work when we are joking around...

Robert I read your profile page today and have to say I knew you were a very intelligent guy - no question - but your comments on there just blew me away! I would never claim I understand everything you wrote, but I did grasp enough to know that your your ideas would have to make the unbelievers question a few things. Just wow.

Chan is not yet clean, but she was drained today. One of the myriad errands i had today. First thing had my hair done. And talked to my stylist who has agreed to come to our house at 6 am on the day of the wedding and do all of the wedding hair of the bridesmaids, the bride and me. I had been sweating this for some time. Originally talked to the branch of the same salon, near me, where xsgirls have been going- but they don’t know me, don’t know that i am a longstanding customer at the other, older branch of the salon. The mgr said he would be happy to open the salon early but could not guarantee stylists, bc he couldn’t make them come in early, they would have to volunteer. I spoke to him exactly a month ago and he never got back to me as promised, so i asked Leigha, and she said she would come to the house and bring another girl with her depending on how many up-dos there were etc. This way, she doesn’t have to split the $ with the owner, and we have a guaranteed person with whom i have a relationship, that will def do this. I felt like a ten ton weight was off my chest, and xsteen felt the same way. it was the only stresspoint that we have had thus far with the wedding stuff. Getting someone to do your hair for a 5 pm wedding, a 3 pm wedding or even a 1 pm wedding would not be hard. 10 AM wedding is another story. So now i am much more relaxed.

I caught part of Kurtz’s show after mass this AM, and saw that woman who recorded and publicized the idiot Sterling’s phone call claims she isn’t “a mistress or whore”-okay, so what is she-a real employee, a figment of someone’s imagination? I guess that is why the guy’s wife is suing her for all that stuff he gave her-it was probably bought with community money, but I guess that was just a simple mistake...

And he said he wishes he had just paid her off. What a charming pair-I hope she gets sued, or dragged to court for recording that call, if it is against the law in Cali-she deserves shunning as much as he does...
